Butter, Shaken not Churned

If you’re here to enter the MyBlogSpark giveaway I’m hosting click here.

Yes, shaking is technically churning. Work with me people, it’s a cute title.
I’m a tiny bit addicted to Pinterest. I surf the pins for ideas almost daily. It’s easy since there’s an App for that!

Gotta love the iPhone!

I re-pinned a pin about making your own butter earlier this week (or maybe it was last week)….anyhoo

I made my own butter.

Take 1 mason jar (small)

Fill a jar with Heavy cream.

I filled the jar about half way up

a pinch of salt, cuz that's how I roll.

Start shaking! The cream will begin to thicken.

Keep shaking…

You’ll shake and shake and shake some more, then all of the sudden the noises will change again (about 12-15 minutes into shaking)

Now all of the sudden…

  6. love this! Not that I need more butter around here, but I may need to try this for the sake of saying I made my own butter. Would be interesting to see if there is a taste difference either. Thanks for sharing
